When we were young I remember spending most of my holidays at my aunties house, oh, those were the days. We could be ourselves, young teenage children having fun.

Thinking of those days brings back the fondest memories of my childhood, did we get up to some mischief.

I remember going back home, back to normality and feeling like the world had ended.

It’s not that home was bad, I’m sure there were a lot worse out there. It was just unhappy times, parents busy with work and us the built in baby sitters for the younger kids.

I remember going to school one morning with my sister and kicking a rubbish bag, back then the bags were on the street awaiting collection.

Well this bag I kicked split open, my sister ran thinking  we would get into trouble. I watched as rubbish started falling out of the bag, as it fell I saw something green.

“It was a $100 note!”

“Wow” I said as I watched more hundred dollar notes fall out, I started picking them up.

All up there was $1,200 worth of hundred dollar notes in that bag. I turned around and headed home to take the money to mum. Being a kid I thought wow I might get a reward. Back then we could buy a coke and a pie for $1.50, so $1,200 was amazing.

Mum rang the Police and told them what happened, an officer came round and we took him to where we found the money, all the bags were gone as the rubbish truck had been.

The police said if no one claimed the money we would get it.

It ends up the money belonged to an old man who had passed on. Cleaners had cleaned his house and thrown out all the rubbish, including the money.

The man had a daughter; she had hired the cleaners so the Police gave the money to her. I was really happy she got the money back but I still felt like I should have got a reward. Typical teenager behaviour.

It had been 2 weeks since I’d found that money when mum said there was a letter for me. I opened it to find a thank you card with $50 in it. The lady explained how she was struggling after the cost of the funeral and how that money would look after her family for a while.

I remember thinking how heartless am I expecting a reward, I felt guilty even looking at that $50. I learnt a valuable lesson that day and that was never expect anything physical back when you do good deeds. Do them because you want to as what you give to the universe you will get back.
